Kelso, Westview shine further in Slugfest

Staff report

DRAFFENVILLE -- Laken Kelso pitched quite a gem for Calloway County at the Marshall County Slugfest on Saturday. She struck out eight Union County batters while allowing just two hits and no walks in a 5-0 Laker win. Celia Murphy and Jaelyn Phillips both had two hits and two RBis for Calloway with Murphy belting a double and Phillips smacking a triple.

Marshall County split two more games it played in its own tournament. Addie Young went 4-for-4 with seven RBIs in a 13-3 triumph over Louisville Atherton. Young blasted two-run homers in both the third and fourth innings for the Marshals. Payton Smithers added to the Marshall output with a pair of triples.

The Marshals then fell to Owensboro Catholic 9-5. Alexa Foster picked up three hits, while Isabella Henning drove in three runs for the Aces. Marshall's Lexee Miller went 3-for-4 with two RBIs.

Carlisle County also had a mixed bag in its other two games at the Slugfest. The Comets led Butler County 6-3 after three innings, but broke things open with a seven-run fourth for a 13-5 victory. Makena Edging and Brittany Morris both drove in four runs for Carlisle with Edging doubling twice and Morris getting a triple. Maddie Martin and Emily Newsome both went 3-for-5 for the Comets.

Carlisle led Martin Westview 3-2 going into the bottom of the third, where the Chargers scored six runs and never looked back for the 12-3 win. Allie Cantrell drove in three runs for Westview, while Blaine McDonald doubled twice and both players collected three hits. Newsome was 2-for-3 with two RBIs for the Comets in this one.

Westview won another game at the Slugfest by edging Graves County 4-3. Anna Hazelwood's two-run homer in the fifth proved to be the game-winner. Taylor Travis got the Eagles close with a two-RBI single in the sixth, but an out on the basepaths ended that threat.

Finally, Union County needed only three innings to stop Murray 16-0.
